This is my son, DJ, with his NEW CLOWN WIG! It’s a fabulous custom-made yak. Great color!
And did you know that Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus has recently created “collectible clown cards”? Who knew?!
I guess that makes Clown Alley a little like Pokémon — “Gotta catch ’em all!”
Here is DJ’s collectible card – R-17 (click on it for full size)
That term has a different meaning in this instance.
This is my darling daughter Julia having another amazing experience on the road.
Each year when the circus come to the Dallas Fort Worth area, former Ringling clowns Ruthie Chaddock and Mark Renfro work their magic. They cast the new clowns’ faces in plaster. Later Ruthie will add their make-ups creating a life mask of their clown.
It is a true honor to have your face cast by Ruthie and Mark. I had mine done in Las Vegas years ago during The Great Clown Adventure. Thank you Mark and Ruthie for sharing your amazing talents with us all!
Catch Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus in your hometown!
